The apogee of anger?

There is something in every one of you that waits and listens for the sound the genuine in yourself. It is the only true guide you will ever have.*
(Howard Thurman)

What if the anger you feel is not about something being wrong out there this time, but something is wrong in here?

Or what if, instead of citing the facts, you look for the meaning:

I take the story literarily rather than literally, which means I look to it for meaning, not facts.**

There’s a difference between seeing and noticing, and anger is a pretty blunt emotion that needs a lot of noticing once we’ve seen it – perhaps even being the apogee of anger.

(*Howard Thurman, quoted in Brian McLaren’s God Unbound.)
